Nooooooo! I was looking forward to tracking your progress on this! :lol:

Maybe give it a few days? I know sometimes when I hit a road block on a project, I have to just put it out of my mind for a while then come back to it.

Kind words guys, thanks indeed.

I did a couple of mods many years ago for a couple of guys here as I recall, am I right in my thoughts I did something for you, was it a wi-fi game controller Anapan - if so (my memory might be wrong), is it still working ok?

Thing is that portabalizing is a labour of love primarily, it's what separates a hobby from being a job. When you start in a company in a new job you're enthusiastic and wanting to make your mark, when your job sucks and it becomes that you don't want to go back to work each day, you quit and do something else. Kinda what i'm saying here with modding.

I used to upload loads of videos to YouTube; I even made a retropie system a few months back for myself but not only didn't have the interest to upload a video but even to post it; or actually to even use it now it's made!

I decided to do this one last system as I had all the parts I needed and got tempted to use them rather than let them gather dust however had forgotten the time-pit portabalizing is and the potential arguments with late night modding sessions with the wife... priorities change, lol

Well either way, glad to see you back on the forums here and I hope you stick around (modding or no modding).

Yeah, the PS1 controller turned Bluetooth controller in glitter black still works perfectly (tho not in windows as we found out - there's a delay there). It has an incredible battery life off a single AA battery.
